false, negative ads- but as your first female attorney general- appointed by republican and democratic governors. as your senator, i'm fighting for equal pay and against workplace discrimination, to expand access to birth control, strengthen and preserve medicare, and i reached across the aisle to protect access to mammograms. i approve this message because after all the false, negative ads, i'm still the kelly ayotte you know- and i'm still fighting for you. tom: well granite state dairy , farmers are struggling to stay
now many say they could use some help from the state. shelley: kristen pope spoke two different farms, one who is in it for the long haul and another with an uncertain future. kristen: here on shirley road, max benedikt operates a small farm. he makes money from whatever he sells. but this year profit has been , struggle. and he says a little assistance would help. >> we're bleeding out tens of thousands of dollars over a season like this. season like this. we're in a situation where the output of the cows is less. kristen: the benedickt farm and others dairy farmers like tom marston are suffering directly from the drought. >> the drought and low prices are definitely limiting what we can do. kristen: and for most farmers, the hit affects more than just their business. it also affects their families. the marston family have been
>> my grandchildren, if, in fact, they are still there, can be. kristen: earlier today marston , attended a meeting with lawmakers in concord hoping to get some relief. an emergency fund was created for dairy farmers in 2008 and never funded. now marston says the state needs to take action fast. >> we are asking for them to move the money from one place to the other and disperse it equitably. >> so much of what we do is not just paying attention to make a it's to enrich in the landscape every one lives in and that, that would be supported by the greater community, through something like the emergency funds. kristen: benedict says despite the financial squeeze, he says not giving up, whether help comes or not. >> failure is not an option for us. we're pretty young. we just started out five years ago so we're in for the long , haul.
and we are just going to keep going. kristen: this year, 19 of the 100 farms have shut down. in goffstown, kristen pope, wmur news 9. tom the boston pops will be : taking over boston's fourth of july celebration. the orchestra announced the change today as longtime executive producer david mugar steps down after 43 years. the event is one of the nation's signature fourth of july celebrations, pops conductor keith lockhart says this will give the pops the best chance to control the event's fate, pops is currently looking for sponsors to fund the eve shelley: tonight, new hampshire's young professionals were recognized at an awards ceremony in bow. the rising star awards are given out by stay, work, play, an organization that encourages 20 and 30-year-olds to stay or come live in the granite state. and tonight's annual event celebrated people and groups that are recruiting and retaining young people. >> we work really closely with all the young professionals networks throughout the state. there are 15 groups at this point, so lots of representatives from those groups are here. we have past winners, all the finalists, judges are a whole
different segments. shelley: and the organization says about half of the state's college graduates actually stay in new hampshire. tom: all right, we are keeping -- we are just hoping for the best for the people of 80. mike: you look at different sectors, and the eastern sector is the worst. unfortunately, that is not going to affect them tonight but right through the day tomorrow. a little bit quieter, although we started off with some fog. it is kind of murky. drizzle. then, developing partial sun. you also notice as it started to threaten the area, some fall weather. not that bad in terms of the fall foliage. on average, up to 50% across the state right now, a couple of downpours moving through over the last several hours, but just
doppler radar. you can see if you more sprinkles between now and midnight, 1:00 a.m., and after that, mostly cloudy with a little bit of fog. statewide, seasonal. a couple of spots just a bit about that, like in nashua, 60. on average, upper 40's in rochester, lower 40's elsewhere. now, for the next couple of days, a great stretch of weat lingering even through midday tomorrow, and then we will start to see this area sliding off to our south, allowing drier air to build in from the north and northwest, and that means plenty of sun by later tomorrow and even more wednesday, thursday, friday, and even early on saturday. as for the highs tomorrow, a little bit cooler than today, upper 50's at the coast, generally about 60 to 65 elsewhere. at the shore, a little bit
70, and then well into the 70's thursday, friday, and saturday. now, here is an update on matthew. the wind has increased, now up to 145 miles per hour, the wind gusts up to 160 miles per hour. take a look at the track. it is a slow jog to the north. that means devastation over a good portion of 80. it barely scraped jamaica. the eastern half, at least some gusts to hurricane force, and then the eastern parts of cuba, yes, they are under the gun. eventually, it begins to turn to the northwest as an area of high pressure builds just to the east of the center and causes it to move off in that direction. the bahamas right under the track. and that it is a slow jog towards the florida coast line. after that, all bets are off.
early on friday. the farther north that is, the better shot it has to get drawn up with the system building in from the west. if it is still stuck down here friday night, early saturday, it has no chance to get up here, because that same trough that is moving in will kick it out to the, -- sea, and you get the idea we still have to track it for the next few days. here are t all of these mathematical equations. that is what each one of these lines is. nearly consistent through thursday, and then after that, notice of a begin to spread up are quite a bit, some to new england, but some out to the sea, to our east. right now, that is the favorite track, south of new england, but no impact here. but keep in mind, if the storm starts to accelerate north, into the bahamas by wednesday afternoon and into the northern portions of florida by thursday
the window of opportunity, if any, for new hampshire would come and saturday night through sunday, and that it would raise away, but right now, just added showers with that weaker system, as i say in from the west. any things could change, so stay tuned. shelley: and our thoughts for the people of haiti. mike: it will be tough.
